ROCHESTER COLLEGE SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS POLICY Approved by academic cabinet on 8-6-08 Federal Law requires that financial aid recipients maintain satisfactory academic progress in a program of study that leads to a degree, certification or transfer program. The following minimum requirements are used to measure a student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) towards the completion of a degree or certificate. These minimum requirements are: A. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) consistent with graduation requirements: 2.0 B. Cumulative Completion Rate (CCR) of 67%, determined as follows: Cumulative Credits Completed Cumulative Credits Attempted Cumulative Credits Completed does not include: “F” Failing, “W” Withdrawal, and “I” Incomplete. Cumulative Attempted Hours includes: successfully completed hours, accepted transfer hours, courses previously taken and repeated, "W's", "F's", and "I's". Courses not considered hours attempted or completed when calculating SAP include: audited and remedial courses. C. Duration of eligibility, which is up to 150% of the program’s length. A student must complete the requirements for the degree within 150% of the time it normally takes to complete the degree. Once a student has attempted 150% of the minimum credits required to graduate they are no longer eligible for financial aid. Traditional Student Example: 128 credits required for a degree X 150% = 192 credit hours a student may attempt while working on the degree. CEL Student Example: 120 credits required for a degree X 150% = 180 credit hours a student may attempt while working on the degree. MONITORING THE MINIMUM SAP REQUIREMENTS A. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) At the end of each semester, the Registrar’s office will review the student’s file to determine if the student is maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements. Failing to maintain the required minimum 2.0 CGPA during the first two academic years of enrollment will result in the sequential academic actions described below. Failing to maintain the required minimum 2.0 CGPA any time after the first two academic years of enrollment will result in Academic Suspension. Note: Students will be notified in writing that an academic action has been taken. Academic action notices will be distributed after final grades are reported for the semester. Copies of academic suspension notices will be forwarded to the Financial Aid office.
